Song Description

True story I saw unfold last Summer. It inspired me to right a song for the soldiers.

Lyrics

I was standing in a chapel on the Fourth of July
By the dearest couple I've ever seen
After we had pledged allegience
The preacher said keep standing
If you served the country here or overseas

From the corner of my eye I saw that old man start to sit down
Then his wife reached out and took him by the hand
She reminded him again that he had fought in the Pacific
Then she held him close and said these words to him

What you can't remember
I won't forget
You are a hero
I'm in your debt
You fought for my freedom
Defied every threat
What you can't remember
I won't forget

As he stood there taking in the applause
I thought about so many who've been lost to the cause
You see them in the streets
Still trying to find their way home
They survived the war
But the war claimed their souls
It's our duty as Americans to rise and let them know

We will remember
What they can't forget
They are our heroes
We're in their debt
They fought for our freedom
Defied every threat
We will remember
What they can't forget

They fought for our freedom
Defied every threat
We will remember
We won't forget
